Speedy Mid Week Dinner
This is one of our mid week meals that is a constant rotation.
It's super fast so you are not spending hours in the kitchen however it also covers all of your macronutrients - protein, fats, and complex carbohydrates meaning you content and not hunting for sweets later on in the evening!
Salmon is a great protein source that also contains omega 3 fatty acids which are beneficial for lowering inflammation, supporting brain health and skin.
There are at least 3 serves of veggies in this dish which makes it highly nutritious and the rice makes you feel full and content.
We like to alternate the veggies regularly - other options we regularly use include: broccoli, cauliflower, capsicum, zucchini, green beans, spinach leaves.
The rice is something else we alternate weekly - we like to use brown rice, black rice or basmati rice.
